until then to convince harry reid and mcconnell to agree to some kind of filibuster reform changes. more broadly speaking, they will continue to meet and plan their strategy for 2013 and 2014 and find the best states where they can have the victories. new york state is a good example. andrew cuomo has indicated willingness for bic reform of money in politics in the state . host: andy host: live coverage of senator patrick leahy, he'll talk about his agenda, the committee's agenda for the 113th congress. introducing him is georgetown university law center professor -- excuse me, law center dean, william trainor. thanks for watching. >> issues like immigration and gun control and what's done with it particularly now in the wake of the terrible murders of children in newtown, connecticut, and privacy and civil liberties and judicial nominations. a couple years ago i had the privilege to introduce senator leahy as he spoke at the new see yum -- newseum, that was a fascinating speech and i know today will be a very important speech on a very important series of topics. after the senator speak
every year. nobody would expect to be paid if they didn't do their job. no budget, no pay. if harry reid cannot pass a budget, they are fundamentally moving the responsibility why they should even be in the majority. to me, this is a turning point for this country, getting to the fundamentals of a planning for the future that this could be the mark of a great american comeback. >> good evening. yesterday, the president was inaugurated and he took a similar -- he took an oath of office that is very similar to the one that we take as members of congress, to uphold the constitution and to protect this country. and it starts with getting a budget in place. that is pretty fundamental to governing and the federal government is operating right now with a continuing resolution. and we need a budget in place. we need a senate to pass the budget. it's going on four years since the senate has passed the budget. the senate has said his budget is going to be delayed. america, families understand they need to pass a budget. you may not want to do it, but you have to figure out how to balance the budge
articles this morning in the papers. host: i'm sure you've seen what harry reid has said. guest: i think they're wrong. i think, you know, we've never seen the sort of enthusiasm on capitol hill. i was in capitol hill all day yesterday. and i think it reflects public demand for some sensible solutions. and particularly after sandy hook. it's going to be extremely difficult for a politician in any district to stand up to their constituents and explain why they fought for the right of felons. and dangerously mentally ill, to be able to buy a gun, no questions asked. they fought for the right of ak-47's. and ar-15's and 30-50-round ammunition round magazines to be on streets of our communities. that is a losing proposition for any politician because the vast majority of americans reject those ideas. and they know we can have sensible solutions that prevent gun violence while respect the second amendment. so the tide has changed. we have gone beyond a tipping point and there's just tremendous momentum and i think that will carry the day here. host: what percentage of american families, ameri
republicans by us passing bills that harry reid said would pass the senate. preconference bills that were dropped at our laps at the end of the crisis right when we were getting ready to shut down the government or hit our default position. i think this is good from the standpoint that we're going to force the senate to debate on the floor of the senate a lot of them only see the floor when they go to vote, i want to see them debate, standing before the american people and talking about their liberal policies and their spending priorities. i believe america needs to see that. i think if we have hope as conservatives to take back the united states senate, we have got to expose those guys and fwals for what they are. >> and i hope that is really the case. but again, this bill has to be -- go to the senate and be signed by the president. so the senate has to agree we're going to put them online. the question in conference was asked one of our leaders, what happens if the senate strips that out and sends back a clean, three-month encrease. one of our leaders said, i'd vote for that it remains
